Basically Unknown's Mind_ContRoL claims Ar1se is out of the team after posting a video that revealed draft information from a scrim with Cloud 9. The announcement came after an altercation between EternaLEnVy and Ar1se on Twitter on the incident.

Tonight has been dramatic for Basically Unknown and Cloud 9 after a video appeared on YouTube showing a team fight from a private scrim between the teams. The reveal of Cloud 9's drafts left captain Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao enraged and resulted in an altercation with Turtoi 'Ar1sE^' Ionut over Twitter. EternaLEnVy posted on the social media website "I feel like the players that post scrim highlights/results have already given up." This prompted an argument between the two players that was later deleted.



The 14 second video included a team fight featuring a combination between Magnus, Lion and Sand King against Cloud 9 and was later removed from the site following the escalation. Bulgarian player Ivan 'MinD_ContRoL' Borislavov later publically apologised to EternaLEnVy over the incident on his personal Twitter account and revealed that Ar1sE^ had been dropped from the team, though the team revealed they had made the decision before the Twitter drama had unfolded. Ar1sE^ had only joined the European team on March 14th, meaning the player had only been a part of the roster for four days before his departure. The Romanian player had previously been involved in drama with EternaLEnVy after he was shown threatening the player in-game.
